Hi Forum Members.
I was successfully able to install CDH 5.0 on CentOS on EC2 AWS. However I was not able to access it via http<IP>:7180 from my Win 7 machine. I used the DNS:port too but no luck.
I connect to EC2 insance via putty with no issues.
I can $ curl http://<IP>:7180 on the instance.
How do I access CDH manager console from out side.
I found the solution.
I had to add a rule in my EC2 security group to allow all trraffic . (Instead of opening to everyone, I added my IP address to it.). Look at the EC2 security tab and AWS online docs for more understanding.
